Inspirational Friday: Timelines of Treachery

Inspirational Friday has been running for years now here in the CSM forum and we have to date covered 83 topics. Many contributors, like myself, Carrack, Scourged, Teetengee and Warsmith Aznable (to name some of the most prolific) write their entries about the same warband, forging very long narratives.

As I have a tendency to jump around the timeline of the Psychopomps – my warband – I thought it would be advantageous (for both writers and readers) to have a companion thread to IF in which we could detail the chronology of our entries.


I will add a link in the first post of Inspirational Friday to this thread for convenience and, as/if members post their own timelines in this thread I’ll link to them in this first post.

Oooh, Consider this post reserved for my entry.

Also, because time travels weirdly, I may create a hatchet order as well.

My Chaos WIP Thread (Bigger Pics and Foul Xenos offsite) Hall of Honour, My Storm Reavers (DIY SM Chapter) Story, My Chaos 7.5 Homebrew Codex Thread
In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Captain Semper, on 29 May 2015 - 4:10 AM, said: There is crazy and there is Teetengee crazy... ph34r.pngnuke.gif

Warsmith Aznable, on 30 Jan 2016 - 01:16 AM, said: 13. Teetengee wrote "Warp Born" and I won't even go into how disturbing the subject matter was.
The Psycho, on 26 Apr 2016 - 10:50 PM, said: That's either really disturbing or really cute, I haven't quite made up my mind yet.


I'm not dead, and I like 8th better than 7th.
